What we call people says a lot about what they mean to us and how we feel about them. Often times, we have special names for the people who are the closest to us. The same is true for God. In church we hear "Our Father", we've asked the Reverend Nathaniel Katz and you all to answer the question "Is God Our Parent?"
The Rev. Nat Katz has gone by many titles since becoming an Episcopal priest – “Reverend Nat”, “Father Nat”, and “Pastor Nat.” Since joining the staff at the American Cathedral in Paris, he’s been called “Canon Nat,” which he’s come to like a lot. But his favorite and most important title, which is for absolutely everyone to claim (even you) is “Child of God.”
